A coffee-cup calorimeter is used to determine the specific heat of a metallic sample. The calorimeter is filled with 50.0 mL of water at 25.0 °C (density = 0.997 g/mL). A 36.5-gram sample of metallic material is taken from water boiling at 100.0 °C and placed in the calorimeter. The equilibrium temperature of the water and sample is 32.5 °C. The calorimeter constant (heat capacity) is known to be 1.87 J/°C. Calculate the specific heat of the metallic material. The specific heat of water is 4.184 J/g°C. 2. When a 4.25-g sample of solid ammonium nitrate dissolves in 60.0 g of water in a coffee-cup calorimeter, the temperature drops from 22.0 °C to 16.9 °C. Calculate the ΔH (in kJ/mol) for the solution process NH4NO3(s) → NH4+(aq) + NO3-(aq). Assume that the specific heat of the solution is the same as that of pure water. 3. Using standard ΔHf values, calculate the value of ΔH° for each of the following reactions: a. NaOH(s) + CO2(g) → NaHCO3(s) b. 4NH3(g) + O2(g) → 2NsH4(g) + 2H2O(l) c. 6C(s) + 6H2O(l) → C6H12O6(s) d. Fe2O3(s) + 6HCl(g) → 2FeCl3(s) + 3H2O(g)


One of the cleanest burning octane is 2.4-trimethylpentane. c. Gasoline is composed primarily of hydrocarbons.3. Write the balanced equation for the formation of C8H18(l) from its elements.2012 . which has the following structural formula: CH3 H3C CH3 CH3 CH3 The complete combustion of 1 mol of this compound to CO2(g) and H2O(g) leads to ΔH° = -5069 kJ. including many with eight carbon atoms.Fulong. a.4.4trimethylpentane. b. C.3. called octanes. Write the balanced equation for the combustion of 1 mol of C8H18(l). Calculate the ΔH°f for 2.
